When I started publishing back in November 2011, I never imagined God would bless me with 100 designs! As I near that number, Puddles and I thought it’d be fun to have a celebration along the way. The next release, number 95, kicks off Puddles 100th pattern dash event!

Fiber Focus, this year we’re breaking from tradition by looking in depth at different eco fibers. First up Organic Cotton yarn! In a nutshell, organic cotton is cotton yarn grown and produced without pesticides and chemical fertilizers. But that’s just the beginning…
A design as luxurious as the fiber with which you knit it; Moonlit Kiss invites you to create something special. Whether planned for a first date, a midnight rendezvous, or catching up with friends under the starry night sky, Moonlit Kiss transforms the phases of life as seen in the lunar calendar to stunning knitted lace.
When God sends you a kiss under the moon light, the only thing to do is repay the blessing by turning it into a design! Originally crafted with Malabrigo Yarn’s Mora in mind, Moonlit Kiss’ objective was “a design as luxurious as the fiber with which it’s knit.” To me that spoke of evening elegance.
But how does that translate into stitches?
Several years ago, I published a how-to hem-as-you-go for bottom up knitting. Those were the days when I never thought I’d ever try top down knitting (hehe, as my nephew says) “in all my life!” But then I was challenged and not wanting to back down, dove into top down knitting. I “mildly” enjoyed it, saw the benefits, and decided, yes, top down knitting is something I would like to investigate further.
The only problem, none of my bag of tricks were applicable!
